Abstract:

A wave-measurement system was deployed in Atchafalaya Bay, Louisiana, of the purpose of determining the wave growth within the bay as a function of fetch length. The wave data acquired provided the basis for development and verification of a shallow-water wave hindcast model. The hindcast model along with 1 year of measured wind information is used to generate 1 year of climatological wave information for 10 locations in the bay. Keywords Measured wave data, Shallow water spectral wave modeling and Wave hindcast statistics.
